The Shrine of Shively
The spectre of this legendary distillery may not be quite as cold and dead as it seems...
in Nelson County, the last whiskey distilled here was in 1952, but
there are still plenty of remains, and the warehouses are in use today.
in Owensboro, Kentucky,
where Wathen's Kentucky Bourbon was bottled, by the man who originally distilled it
for Glenmore Distillers. Charles and his son Sam have moved the bottling
operations to the Frank-Lin company in San Jose, California, and the brand
is slowly becoming available in more areas.
Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery
near Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. This was the old Hoffman distillery that
served as home for two generations of classic Old Rip Van Winkle whiskeys.
If the label says, "Lawrenceburg" it was from here.
Julian Van Winkle is now operating from the Buffalo Trace distillery in Frankfort.
And if you'd like to see
what's left of some "not-there-no-more"
distilleries in other states...
